USA: Work Still to be Done in Honduras

A top US official traveled to Honduras Tuesday to press for a final resolution of the ongoing political crisis, the US State Department said. Craig Kelly, deputy assistant secretary for the Western Hemisphere, was to make clear to both sides that more progress was needed in the run-up to the January 27 inauguration of president-elect Porfirio Lobo.

Kelly “is there to communicate clearly to a variety of parties that there are still things that Honduras has to do,” said State Department spokesman PJ Crowley. Kelly plans to meet with the deposed leader and his rival, interim President Roberto Micheletti.
Kelly is also expected to see President-elect Porfirio Lobo, who takes office January 27th.

The additional measures included the creation of a government of national unity and a truth commission to help resolve some of the disputes over the past year.

Lobo hopes to put behind the massive crisis sparked by the ousting of former President Manuel Zelaya in June 2009.

    What if the truth is not what they want to hear? That Zelaya actually did intend to extend term limits and did not intend to hold an election at all?
